Beton4s, using different Yahoo IDs, has spent the past 9 years pumping the stock and praising every decision made by its management.
Was beton4s paid for all the time he spent virtually patting the CEO on the back, or is kissing a mans rear end just a hobby of his?
Turnouts and ratings for the World Cup, Tour de France, and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest show what America wants in terms of sports entertainment. Companies like CHDN have allowed their products to be dominated by these up and comers in the ner marketplace.
Bye bye derby. Hasta la vista Triple Crown. Good riddance California Chrome.
Read the news article. It was Churchill Downs that laid off its employees.
"By the way, some of you on this board seem happy about the Calder layoffs. Begs the question: do you have souls?"
Who's happy? Only two people posted about it besides you.
Now, pretend you own a business. Would you lay off your own loyal employees in order to hire someone else's? Keep in mind you already have the best employees because you wouldn't have kept bad people in your organization.
And it's strange how you ignored the part of the story where it says Frank did hire 50 employees from Calder.
Bottom line: Churchill is cashing in on slots and firing Florida employees.
They promised so much money for education if they could get slots.
Then they claimed they needed ATMs. That's why they couldn't deliver the cash.
Then they whined about the tax rate. So Fla cut their taxes. Still the co didn't deliver.
Then they sues Hialeah to stifle competition.
Now they've given up on horse racing and fired hundreds of people.
I hope Illinois doesn't fall for the promises.
The poor condition of Fairgrounds is just the tip of the iceberg.
Calder looks dilapidated from the Turnpike. Can't they at least buy some paint?
I think they just get their handouts and ship them up to Kentucky.
A flood of future democrats. Texas WILL be blue.
(with both hands in air) "What can we do? Deport them all?"
Yep. And I don't think the $1 a day lease will go very far towards saving Calder.
When they finally do board it up, it'll be less of an eyesore.
It's unfortunate for CHDN, but I think the board made the right decision.
tomorrow with an eighth straight win in the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.
And ESPN will make history again by dominating the Derby television ratings with it's broadcast from Coney Island.
beton4s spent 7 years trying to win your approval.
Then he spent the next two years getting all his posts deleted.
We've been saying this for years.
It's smoke and mirrors. The handouts come in. The places are not taken care of; instead they defer it and book the 'profit'. It gets covered up by the apparent boost in cash flow when they overspend on another casino in the middle of nowhere (or worse).
Eventually the wheel will fall off and it will skid off the road into a tree.
Boaf doesn't get it. He wants the top dogs to take less bonuses and share the profits. He doesn't realize what's happening.
Some day CHDN will be in the hemp business. That's after they figure out that slots are dead.
They'll get into this business by overpaying for now barren pot farms well after boom.
Calder would look a lot if they tore down the dilapidated looking building and planted some vegetation instead.
